Written by Edward Albee
Directed by Craig Pearson
On a warm Saturday night in the early autumn of the 1950’s, Nick, an opportunistic university professor and his wife are invited to an after party by the University President’s daughter Martha and her husband George, a senior professor. As the drinks flow and inhibitions are lowered, what is supposed to be a pleasant night cap quickly turns into something unexpected. As they talk about their pasts, a casual slip of the tongue reveals something tragic that has defined and shaped the older couple’s lives. This iconic work has captivated audiences for over 50 years and defined the genre of the psychological drama.

This offbeat comedy features an immigrant couple from Poland who are having a hard time in their strange new country. Anka, a well known actress in Warsaw, can’t get work because of her accent; Jan, a writer, is struggling with writer’s block. As they try to get some sleep, flash backs bring characters from their past, present, dreams, and nightmares crawling from beneath the bed. This multi-layered comedy examines the possibility that, while you may not be able to go home again, that doesn’t mean home can’t keep messing with your head.
“Hunting Cockroaches” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

One of the “big three” rock musicals, Hair is a product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the 1960s. The story of a group of politically active, long-haired hippies living a bohemian life and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War, its songs and story became anthems of the peace movement. This raw and emotional play is an intimate examination of the fight for ownership of the characters’ bodies, values, right, identities, sexuality and ideas, a fight that is every bit as relevant today.
